To Do: Star Garland

This simple garland made of woven palm leaf stars has become one of my favorite Christmas decorations. You can see a strand in action in my apartment here.

At $11 for two 14 foot sets, they're an easy and affordable way to brighten your home during the holidays. Plus, they're made in Bangladesh through a fair trade network. Just be sure to wrap the strands around a box when you're packing up - those stars can get tangled amazingly fast.

My sister made a star garland for me out of origami stars she had crafted. She got inspired by your star garland http://yfrog.com/4azgpaj

I can attest to how easily they get tangled! I bought one of the garlands last year at a store in Sonoma--I plan on using it for my Christmas wrapping, too. it is beautiful!
